Your "expectations" are futile if they don't take into account what's going on around us too....
In case you hadn't noticed the richest team 'ever' won a treble last year.
Meanwhile another team that finished above is pipped us to the ONLY other trophy available to us.
We're not catagorically the best team in the country so to DEMAND (expect) a trophy is delusional. entitlement.
And what about the previous seasons?
Woolwich have had an inferior side to us but have won 3 FA Cups in the last 6 years, they are not the richest team in the league - they have an owner that is bleeding the club dry. Why is that?
United won an FA cup in a season where we finished above them and crashed out to Palace at home in that cup. They also won the UEFA cup in a season where again we finished above them and got knocked out by Gent. What is the rationale for this?
Why are we the only club in the top 6 to have not won a trophy in the last 5 seasons when we have have higher consistent finishes than sides other than City? Why are we the exception here?
